Benni On How He Will Approach Pirates

Cape Town City will be in search of a win to turn their fortunes around when they face Orlando Pirates on Wednesday.

The Citizens suffered a 4-1 Absa Premiership loss to Kaizer Chiefs at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, September 15, with the Mother City-based club now desperate to recover from their biggest defeat of the season.

Speaking after the game, Head Coach Benni McCarthy revealed that maybe his side needs to change their approach to the game when they come up against Pirates, especially since they will be without their key defender, Taariq Fielies.

“We go away to Pirates and now you look for a response, okay we learned from where it didn’t go our way. We try to play our football and our game when we create chances and punish teams if we take our chance. Maybe we need to change our mindset a bit instead of going pound to pound with teams,” McCarthy told the media. 

“Maybe take a different approach to how we are going to play Pirates, not saying that we are going to be scared and we are going to park two busses, but maybe just to be a bit more responsible and think about a way we attack the next game.” 

“When you suffer four goals, it isn’t very mentally easy for goalkeepers to take. So maybe just change our approach a little bit tactically,” he added.
